The Green Hornet won't be a comedy
Seth Rogen has been talking about Green Hornet and what his plans are for the film. When the announcement was first made I immediately thought that this would become a comedy in the vein of Rogen's previous films, The 40 Year Old Green Hornet. However he's been addressing that thought and it might just be alright.
In the Q&A that followed a screening of Superbad at Comic-Con, Seth Rogen talked a little about The Green Hornet and was quite definite that this film was not a comedy. According to Coming Soon he said...
“...not a comedy, it's an action movie.”
Now that is good. Not only will it be interesting to see how he can take on the action and to a lesser degree the superhero genre, but it will also be interesting to see how he can bring The Green Hornet to life without the reliance on comedy.
